Hi,

I am wondering if it will be possible to simultaneously acquire video from multiple FireWire Cam. Will I have problems with bandwidth?

Thanks.

Hello,

Yes, it is possible, to acquire simultaneously videos from than one FireWire camera. You will get bandwidth problems. For a table of bandwidth allocations see here:

You can solve these problems by using more than one FireWireboard in your computer.

You can use IC Capture trial to display more than one video stream simultaneously:
